Abstract: Digital Reference Services are increasingly recognized as an essential component of digital library operations. We are seeing that there is a strong need for components of this service to interoperate in order to provide comprehensive and seamless service for the user. This Workshop will explore what standards are needed to facilitate the development and implementation of Digital Reference Services. This Workshop will bring together no more than 35 persons who are experienced and interested in the development of digital reference services to advise NISO on the prospect of successfully introducing standards in this new area of service.
